According to information gathered today, on the afternoon of March 13, while scouting for the military, Thet Naing Phyo (aka Yakkha) and Kyaw Ye were captured by a military column with around 120 junta personnel. At that time, the military column was traveling to No. 8 Exercise Training Center in Shwebo Township from Ye-U Township, Sagaing Region. Thet Naing Phyo was a member of the People’s Defense Force from Than Po Village in Khin-U Township, Sagaing Region. Kyaw Ye was a resident of the village. Later, Thet Naing Phyo’s decapitated head was found hanging from a bamboo rod outside the village, and Kyaw Ye’s body, whose face and hips were bloodied, was also found outside the village. 

In addition, on March 12, the junta’s Division 66 raided a refugee camp on a hill near Lel Tun Village in Pekon Township, Shan State. Then, they killed married couple Hla Nyein, age 78, and Mu Luu, 81, by burning them alive along with their tent. Moreover, Kyaw Hu, 15, and Than Aung, 45, were shot dead by the junta forces. On March 13, the military column left the refugee camp, where the deceased’s bodies were found that day.
